Revisiting channel and codes Consider a DMC with transition probabili- ties P Y X ( y x ) | | For any block length N , let N P Y N | X N ( y | x N ) = i N =1 P Y | X ( y i | x i ) P X N ( x N ) = N i =1 P X ( x i ) P Y N ( y N ) = i n =1 P Y ( y i ) in particular we can select the input prob- ability to be capacity-achieving, since IID inputs yield capacity for a DMC the output alphabet Y and the input alpha- bet X may be different
Revisiting channel and codes The code is a block code with bit blocks of length L being mapped onto code se- quences of length N For binary sequences, the block code maps all the possible M = 2 L binary sequences onto sequences x N The rate of a block code is R = log M N Let τ c be the duration of an output symbol y from Y , the data rate in bits is R τ c For any positive integer and R > 0, a ( N, R ) block code is a code of length N which has 2 NR codewords

Upper bound on probability Recall that for the weak coding theorem we performed a typicality-based decoding That decoding led to a WLLN type of ar- gument, which was the source of the poor handle we have on the behavior of error probability with N Let us then consider another criterion for decoding: maximum likelihood

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
